It's been discussed before, but with word coming out now that he won't be back with the Dolphins, I think it deserves to be discussed again.  Would you want him here?  I say heck yes.  He was the #42 pick less than two years ago and is no dummy, going to Stanford and with Harvard educated parents.  I also think at 24 he should have something to prove with great upside after the whole ordeal and it would be like getting another 2nd round pick for what should be a great deal.  With Martin, Nicks, and maybe Tillman (or similar combo) in FA, GMan could truly feel like Scarface when he saw "The World Is Yours" going into the draft.

twould be great to get a quality, young OL in before the draft...but only if we can get him for the vet minimum.

Tough call.

 

Yes, he's the victim in all of this, but how would teammates react to what he did?  Loads of trash talk goes on in a locker room.  How confident would you be in messing with Martin - as teammates normally do - given his history?

 

When this discussion came up before, Martin had an old friend/college teammate on the Panthers roster in Sione Fua.  Fua's gone now.

It doesnt even have to be the vet min. Just pay him what a rookie second rounder would be making. It will be relatively cheap. Martin would love playing for us Gross, Kalil, and the other guys are all nice and fun guys to be around.

Is he any good?

Nope. Bullying scandal aside, he wasn't very good. He got demoted once, and had been playing poorly on the other side also.

Is he any good?

 

Probably better than Byron Bell.

 

I wouldn't call him great or elite, but 'good' isn't a reach.

 

His performance had declined some, but I'm sure he'd say that was due to the locker room issues.

 

(whether or not that's actually true, who can say?)

    • Scouting report: A player who arguably all season long was the best offensive threat in college basketball sits around the later top ten in almost all draft boards. Monk is easily compared to Jamal Crawford because of his aggressive shooting combined with the ability to score from anywhere. Monk shot a near 40 percent from three while shooting 82 percent from the free throw line in his first year at Kentucky. Monk averaged an SEC second best 19.8 points per game. Monk has a shooting skillset that is needed in the NBA but is hard to find. He has that unconscious shooting stroke which can be Curry like at times. What intrigues scouts the most about Monk is that he is not just a shooter, he plays above the rim and he can guard either the one or the two. Although Monk showed off his high-flying display all year long at Kentucky, it was his defense that stood out the most. His run and gun mentality allows him to jump passing lanes and play in your face defense on almost every possession forcing turnovers and fast break opportunities quite frequently. Monk is a dangerous transition guard who can score in a flurry. With the way that the NBA is going regarding athletic three point shooting guards, Monk would fit well with virtually every team in the NBA and could be used in multiple different lineups. Even though he is a shooter, Monk has the capability of running an offense and getting his teammates open.
